A couple of years ago I learnt how to make socks, and I became quite an enthusiastic. I only used to knit socks when I was taking a break from knitting for other designs ideas…
Until I finally decided ‘why not? Why not design a pair of socks too?’
So here’s my first sock pattern. It’s a top down all-over ribbed sock design with some ingenious cabling down the back (hidden) side.
Even though making them requires a bit more labor than a plain vanilla sock, these are for sure, my favorite to wear :)
The ribbed fabric make these socks comfortable and so well fitting… The cable details make them unique. ❤️
